Agile methodology seems to suit kiwi psyche
By Peter Kerr for sticK
(sticK - 23 Dec. 2010 ) A relatively recent 'movement' in software development runs the risk of dovetailing perfectly with the kiwi psyche.
'Agile Methodology', as used by super graphics creators BIS2, is, as self-defined, a quicker and better means of delivering bespoke software to clients.
The traditional (ironic, given that computing's really not even 50 years old) method of software creation starts with asking the user what they want, what their requirements will be, and getting a first sign off.
Developers, and the company supplying the solution, build, test and fix the bugs in the client's software before releasing it. This is a long process, which by its end often sees the client's requirements having changed. And so the process begins again.
